When performing a silent installation, specific program options are required to run the Security Center Installer.

The syntax for running the setup in silent mode is:

<setup_exe> <options> <SC_options>
  • <setup_exe> is the setup program for the Security Center Installer. You can either use the standalone version ("Security Center Setup.exe" found in the SC Packages folder) or the web version (SecurityCenterWebSetup.exe).

    Do not use the setup.exe in the root folder of the installation package. It is an AutoRun-enabled version of the standalone installer, and does not accept command line arguments.

  • <options> are the setup program options. They all start with a forward slash (/) and are case sensitive.
  • <SC_options> are the Security Center options. They are all written in capital letters.

The following table describes the setup options.

Setup option Description
/ISInstallDir Specifies the root folder where the product subfolder will be created. Default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Genetec Security Center 6.6.
  • /ISInstallDir=C:\MyFolder
  • /ISInstallDir="D:\Program Files\MyFolder"
NOTE: In the second example, the (") are required because the value contains spaces. If not specified, the default is <ProgramFiles>, where <ProgramFiles> is either %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, depending on the version of your operating system.
The folder path cannot end with a trailing backslash (\). This causes the silent installation to fail with a fatal error.
/ISFeatureInstall Specifies the features to be installed. The possible values are:
  • Server (Genetec™ Server with or without Directory, depends on the SERVER_TYPE installer option)
  • Client (Security Desk and Config Tool)
  • SecurityDesk (only Security Desk)
  • ConfigTool (only Config Tool)
  • CompPacks,CompPack4x[,CompPack4x] (Omnicast™ compatibility packs, you must specify at least one of CompPack46, CompPack47, or CompPack48)
  • /ISFeatureInstall=Server,Client (DEFAULT)
  • /ISFeatureInstall=Client,CompPacks,CompPack48
/silent Sets the Security Center setup.exe program to run in silent mode with no user interaction.
/debuglog<FilePath> Enables the creation of the installation log file and specifies the file path.
NOTE: The folder path specified in <FilePath> must exist. The setup program will not create it.

EXAMPLE: /debuglog"C:\LogFiles\Install.log"

/log<FolderPath> Enables the creation of the log files and specifies the folder path.
NOTE: The <FolderPath> must exist. The setup program will not create it.

EXAMPLE: /log"C:\LogFiles\"

/language: Sets the language used by the installation program. Immediately precedes the four-digit language code. No space is allowed.
  • /language:1033 for English (DEFAULT)
  • /language:3084 for French
<SecurityCenter_options> Sets the Security Center options.
Each option in this list uses the following syntax:

where <option> is an option name and <value_list> is a list of comma separated values.

No space is allowed on either side of the equal sign (=). If the value list must contain spaces, the entire value list must be included between a pair of double quotes preceded by a backslash (\").
